Lottery Winners That Started Successful Businesses

For many of us, when we envision winning the lottery we see ourselves galivanting across the globe, living in lavish houses and driving expensive cars!

A big lottery win can definitely help you do that, but if you keep spending and spending, sooner or later your money may run dry.

Many lottery winners have lost their grand fortune by making terrible money decisions, whilst others have used their amazing luck to create businesses that not only bring them joy but expand their wealth!

Here are 4 lottery winners that have used their winnings to start successful businesses!

A Golf Range and Battery Store

In 2007 Jason Fry won a whopping $17 million dollars in the Florida lottery and spent his money on holidays, football tickets and a new Cadillac Escalade, before deciding to settle down and put his money into launching two businesses.

Fry loved playing golf and decided to use some of his winnings to invest in a golf range that made him hundreds of thousands of dollars a year annually. With a strong business mindset, Jason also acquired a BatteriesPlus Store and the franchise rights to three others. This investment was a great success with Fry gaining around a million dollars annually.

Whilst Fry has enjoyed spending his fortune on expensive cars and boats, he makes sure he is never in debt and watches over the success of his businesses carefully.

Now that is one way to spend a lottery win!
